at our blog at ed.msnbc.com. >> one of the big hurd els that president obama has right now is to get white working male os his side. how do you see that playing out from what you've been able to see on the ground in ohio. >> that's exactly why he went to lake county today. it's a place i know well, i was born and raised in that county and it was a tight one in 2008. barack obama pulled it out by less than 1%, but it's a county that's 95% whoit and it's a place where barack obama believes that his economic message will resonate. he was hitting hard in his speech today. he was enn in the 82 out of 88 counties that have businesses that are related to the auto industry, is the controversy that's gone on over that widely discredited ad put out by the romney campaign. and if you talk to people on the ground, one of the things that they'll tell you is that they think there has been a backlash against that ad. that the voters here know exactly what's going on in the auto industry. one out of every eight jobs is tied to the auto industry and they say they're not being fooled by it. i also tal
was full praise for president obama last night. romney did the right thing. romney campaign agreed to not attack the president in the next couple of days, which is very smart politics, if you will, but it's the right thing to do. >> kimberly: he's a gentleman. >> bob: and they both called off the campaign events which is the right thing to do in the effected areas. so far, the politics, i say obviously it benefits to the president. but romney has inserted himself -- >> eric: can i interrupt? this is absolutely going to benefit mitt romney, because romney was on, he was getting the momentum. he had the gallup poll increasing in his favor and still is. what this did, what the storm did is put evening on hold. froze everything in place. he gets the bigger momentum. importantly, the female vote. the women vote was going, he closed that gap completely. now there is a freeze. bam become can't go -- obama can't go negative and romney can't go negative. if president obama starts showing up at these various places too often, people will say he is pandering. political pandering because these
it tell you right now that a lot of the promises barack obama made were in iowa. he didn't come through on those promises. i think that's a big deal. wisconsin, i'll be there tomorrow. wisconsin, i think, right now the momentum is with governor romney. we've done a whole lot of winning as republicans in wisconsin. you look at colorado. >> let me stop you in wisconsin because i want to read you something that david axelrod told "the daily caller." >> we expected wisconsin to be closer than last time. it is in our column now, and it's going to be in our column. >> yeah, well, he can say whatever he wants to say. i mean, they haven't been able to win in wisconsin for a long time. they claim that the obama machine was out during the walker recall. we basically crushed them in wisconsin. i have seen firsthand the difference between obama's rhetoric on their ground game and the reality, and the reality is they're not as good as they think they are, but overall besides the ground game talk, this is about the president's policies, the current state of the economy. it is a complete disaster. onl

in play for romney. the problem is this. virginia is dead even right now. krystal is right. if obama picks up virginia, it ends things. >> it's dead even right now, but one of the things karen finney pointed out is latinos are underpolled nationwide partly because of a language barrier. you don't get an accurate reading and we talked about before in 2010 colorado, harry reid, a lot of latinos there. they trailed sharon engel by three points at the end and he wins. they're not correctly polling latinos and hispanics. virginia is a huge thing. 80% of the state, and a 92% increase since 2000. if you see an irregularity or differentiation from the polling in colorado, virginia, florida and perhaps florida on election night because they didn't correctly poll lati teenotices. >> virginia will come down to the d, democrats. 200,000 defense jobs are on the line with that sequestration looming on the horizon. the president knows that. i think george allen and tim kainen that. george allen has a new ad talking about it. >> the defense cuts tim kaine are threatening over 200,000 virginia jobs. the so
rate right now is 8%. president obama won the state in 2008 by a 9% advantage. joining us from denver is curtis hubbard. what is the top issue for colorado voters? guest: it would not surprise you when i sit the top issue is the economy and jobs. energy is a big issue. education is another big issue. among the latino population and especially democrats, immigration reform is a big issue. host: what is the demographic of the voters in colorado? guest: 52% women, 48% men. over the years, we have increased the number of people voting by mail. already 800,000 people have cast ballots in the state. the state is equally divided. one-third is republicans, one- third is democrats, and the other one-third are unaffiliated voters. everybody is playing for that group of unaffiliated voters. you try to figure out which way it will break. you will hear a lot of talk about appealing to women and latinos. we have heard a lot about the bennett strategy, that refers to the strategy michael bennett used in running against the tide and enter 2010 where by appealing to women and latinos he was able to ek
to make key moves in the electorial college vote. right now. goch gov and president obama talking to a rally in ohio and making final pitch in the key swing states. molly has more on that and the rest of the top stories. >> both have packed schedulings. right now gom gom is on the rally to iowa. he start in new hampshire and will end in colorado . president obama will finish up in ohio and head to wisconsin, iowa and virginia. >> fox obtained exclusive information showing that the state department was warned about security concerns about the consulate in lib rabefore the attack. u.s. officials in benghazi came up with a plan to close the consulate and move to the cia annex. it was secretary to secretary of state less than a month before the attack. sound of residents cleaning up will replace the runners in new york city. mayor bloomburg decided to cancel the world's largest mara thon after a outcry from angry residents. they will guarantee their entry for next year's race. >> it is that time of year again. don't forget to set your clocks back tonight. daylight savings is two can l
. i am uma kumarajo. america's news headquarters right now. hello, everybody. we begin with the final push for the white house. governor mitt romney is chris crossing with stops new hampshire and colol and ohio. and president obama also has stops planned in wisconsin and virginia still to go. we have live team coverage over the next two hours and chief white house correspondant edhenry. first governor romney will end his day. >> good afternoon. there is talk on the campaign trail about something that president obama said yesterday when he was in ohio. he does this and said something about governor romney and the audience said don't boo but vote. he talked about senate cand date governor romney was opposed to clinton tax increases. listen to where he took that yesterday. at the time the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of romney. no, no, no. don't boo vote. vote. vote is the best revenge. voting is the best revenge. that is not a thing for the president to say. romney campaign has a new adout that looks as a strange thing for the president to say and an odd reason
on the high end, but there's not any real concern right now in the obama camp that they're in danger of losing wisconsin. they're sending the president there just to try and nail it down because they don't want to leave any stone unturned. but right now, you get a sense of growing confidence in the obama camp. they feel like they're going to be okay. >> well, and here is the reason why. of all these battleground states, the president needs to win just three in order to win a second term to get 271 electoral votes and those are nevada where there are six votes, wisconsin where there are ten and here in ohio, there are 18. and winning just those three of all these battle grounds gets you to 271 in a very narrow win, but that's what would do it for him and they feel very good about those three states. >> assuming they hold pennsylvania. >> that's true. that is a big point right there. >> i think there's a sense that florida might be moving in romney's direction. structurally, that's always been the most problematic of the battleground states for obama. and if i were betting, i would bet romney ca
comment hard. president obama promised we would have 4.2% economic growth right now. we have 2%. he promised an unemployment rate lower than we have. on the issue of trust, what is going on with regard to libya. we have an extraordinary thing where the president comes out on friday and says i directed that everything possible should be done to aid our embassy under attack. that attack went on for seven hours. secretary of defense saying he denied requests for help over that seven hours. >> we'll get to that later. >> but it's a trust issue. >> on the economy, how does it tip the scales, david brooks? >> i think it's been the worst campaign i have ever covered. they are both ending where they started. obama doing a negative campaign. he's got an ad out about romney and the flip-flop and what we have heard. it's almost pure negativity. romney is trying to appeal to moderates and women, which is a bipartisan ad saying i don't care if it's a republican or democrat idea, i'm for that. you know, he has -- it's not who he is or what his policies are. i regard it as a campaign that's not ad

for him to win the presidency. and right now polls show that president obama is holding onto a modest lead here in the buckeye state. president obama made three stops here on friday. and really what was a campaign all-out blitz, two of those stops, by the way, alex, were in counties that he lost back in 2008. he's hoping to kick off some of those working-class voters. he's doing it by the auto bailout. that is something that is widely popular here that, of course, mitt romney opposed. widely popular because one out of every eight ohioans has a connection to the auto industry. president obama also touting what he called an economy that is in recovery. he referenced friday's jobs report to do it. take a listen. >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars, and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learned the company's hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> president obama has a frenetic campaign today straight through election day today, alex. he will make s
the debates gave him a second look in such a way that he can carry that through election day. the obama folks say look at the electoral map. we could be in for quite a finish here, if they're both right. >> they could be both right. we've talked about the popular vote thing. we've seen polling out today. if you look at the president's lead, for instance, on the west coast in california -- the lead has been cut in half. i've done some math, can you see where mitt romney makes up some six to eight million votes. john mccain lost by ten million votes, he could pick up a whole bunch of votes in the nonbattleground states. let's go to our battleground map. i'll show you how easy it is. we have the president winning in virginia, wisconsin is a state that just feels on the ground is something that leans toward the president. now you just give him new hampshire, and he sits at 270, that's with giving romney ohio, that's with giving romney florida. that's with giving him iowa. that's with giving him colorado. that's this issue of the battleground versus the popular vote. >> more to come from chuck tod

's right harris. romney campaign believes that obama cam pawn is on defense. and so we see the president trying to really his best got a new adout hitting romney and claims she is flip flopping and then something we haven't heard the president do. talking about the broader tax cut that governor romney talked about and disputing the figures. they talked about that before. this time he zero in on taxes in massachusetts. and a bither joke thrown it. >> there were higher fees for gas. there were higher gas for milk and higher fees for blund people who neepeded to get a certificate that they were blind . he raised feas for a birth certificate which would have been expensive for me. and the romney camp is pushing back and said the feas were raised to balance the state budget and as governor he cut other taxes. and the romney camp is angry about the birther things and rolling stone mag wreen where the president used profanity to describe romney. this is it a snaul campaign and instead of the president doing uplifting ret ruck. respiratory new hampshire is a small state but beautiful. and the pr
the race stand right now? well, a new rasmussen poll of likely voters showing governor romney leading president obama 49% to 47%. now, that is westboun within thn of error. former mississippi governor haley bar bore join barber join. good evening. > >> greta: have you had any further thoughts about the race? >> for my thinking, the biggest change in the race is to obama's favor and that's been this storm, you know. any day that we're not talking about the economy and jobs, that we're not talking about obama's record for debt and deficits, health care, energy, any day we're talking about something else, that's good for obama, and so i will be surprised if he doesn't make a little bit of a comeback here. he's had a prett pretty solid mt for a month. there wasn't anything happehe m. what may stop it is this storm and not so much that the president will do a great job, although i don't have any doubt that he will. mostly what happens right after a terrible storm is we know where i come from, it's the local first responders. it's the firemen, the policeman, the highway patrolmen, the natio
. i think he's right. he's not going to go out and poke at president obama just like chris christie's not. nobody else is going to. but we got a really big election next tuesday. >> greta: it's sort of interesting. most of the damage is in new jersey and maryland and all these coastal states. they're not the swing states. it seems to me that there would maybe be a political advantage to governor romney because president obama is busy with those states. he can go out to colorado and minnesota, he can go to michigan, and even ohio is touched by the storm. in some ways, the president is sort of locked into position. >> well, virginia's touched by this. pennsylvania very seriously hit by this. there's a lot of overflow into ohio. there's a serious situation there, but the bigger point is that every minute of television today and yesterday and the day before yesterday, every minute was dedicated to this storm which means it took off of people's minds and took off the front burner obama's bad record with bad results which is why he's losing this election because the american people know w
important ohio is. president obama holding a four-point lead in this new poll, slightly outside the margin of error and significantly right at the crucial 50% mark. so the question is, what is driving the numbers in ohio right now? chief national correspondent john king has some answers. >> well, anderson, that narrow ohio lead for the president is within the poll's sampling error but it is yet another poll showing the president with a small persistent lead in the state of ohio. let's take a closer look at why it is happening in this state that is so important in the pick for president. here's the main reason right here. governor romney gets the republicans. the president gets the democrats but at the moment, in our survey, the president has a narrow lead among ohio voters who define themselves as independents. that is the battleground in a big battleground state, if you win the independents you are likely to win. governor romney close but the president with an important edge among independent voters. there's also an age divide, if you look at likely voters in ohio. among voters under the
to really hurt president obama if it comes to that. but kristen's right, this is about the margins here. if north carolina, for example, was a good example in 2008. you know, obama won the youth vote nationally by 66%. in north carolina, he won it by 74% and he only won the state by 14,000 votes. so if he had won a similar share of north carolina as nationally, he would have lost north carolina. so that's why you see in a state like north carolina, for example, and ohio, the campaign being so aggressive with mobilization efforts on campuses because there's a cushion there, i don't think it will swing the election one way or the other on a macro level, but just around the edges. >> kristen, do you think the demographics shifts this cycle, particularly the increase in young latino voters will make a big difference? >> i think that you can increasingly not separate out the issues of young voters and the issues of the changing demographics in this country. significantly fewer young voters were white than older voters. the demographic shifts are showing up in this group. but you're still see
obama and... i approve this message. >> neil: all right. crisis always breed crisis. for a lot of folks who were dealing with sandy, getting 911 calls through the call centers, a lot of those calls were routed and dropped and/or lost, coming from a federal communication official via reuters here. if it brought on outages and knocked a number of these calls out of the system. hard to say whether that meant people just redial 911 to try to get back in queue. but it was not unusual particularly in monitoring states like new york and new jersey last night. a lot of calls to 911 were not super emergencies, so michael bloomberg said just save it for super emergencies or those where you feel your life is threatened. few obviously, the phone banks were flooded, a lot of the calls -- no pun intended by the way -- were overwhelmed. some when they were bumped around knocked down. we'll keep an eye on this how widespread it might have been or might still be. it's official. trading is back tomorrow. for the latest after two days of no trading, sandra smith from the chicago mercantile exchange. >> af
it but. anyway, in a poll showing that people have all right voted so that the governor is ahead by six points 52 percent to 46 percent. early voters helped obama win in 2008 what if they are doing the reverse in 2012? karl rove is looking at this. what do you make of this, karl? karl: as you say those who have voted one in six voters who said they voted they gave mitt romney a six-point margin, less than one out of five voters say they are going to vote before election day, they split evenly between president obama and governor romney which tends to indicate that at least the enthusiastic el her voters are republican and the democrats have a prove with a lack of enthusiasm among their people and finally on election day the people would plan, just less than two-thirds 63 percent plan to vote on election day, they split for governor romney by the same number six points 51 to 45 percent so at least according to gallup this looks good. it is also borne out by if you look at the battleground state roughly 11 million, rather, 11 percent advantage for democrats either voting early or casting
for mr. obama to mr. romney and that doesn't seem to be happening right now. i think it ought to be hurting the campaign a bit. >> mark, very briefly. this is really a chance for the president to explore that illusive quality of presidential leadership in the campaign. >> this is what -- who deserves to be president. people are looking towards him, how does he lead, how does he speak for america? it's a real opportunity for him, but if he gets it wrong, that is a very big black mark just days away from the election. >> yeah, this storm, no one knows how it will play out politically. thank you both very much. you're watching "bbc world news america." still to come on tonight's program -- as china gets ready to hand over power to a new generation, the residents of one rural village talk about their expectations. >> a former bbc governor says that jimmy was kept away from children in need. jones, who was chairman of the charity, said he had suspicions about the former tv star a decade ago. his comments come on the day of whether the corporation's child protection and whistle blow
